8 Reasons For

Logitech Has Excellent Webcam Reviews

Logitech has excellent average reviews for its low megapixel count webcams as well as across its entire webcam range.

Reasonably Priced

One person reckoned that the product was good value for money. Baggieman63 wrote on Amazon “Definitely value for money” in their review of the Logitech B905 and rated the product as excellent.

Good Sound Quality

One Logitech B905 owner who reviewed it said that it had a good microphone.

Good Product Quality

One person who reviewed the product reckoned that it was good quality. Baggieman63 gave it a score of 5 stars and said in their review “Fantastic picture quality and great sound”.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were launched more than two years ago, the Logitech B905 has a built-in microphone.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think the Logitech 960-000842-981-000094[plb_3238822_price], the LogiLink UA0161[plb_1756643_price], and the Thrustmaster Optical Glass[plb_1043509_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Logitech B905 has a maximum video resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's over six times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution.

This webcam's video resolution (1600 x 1200 pixels) is actually the best video resolution amongst all webcams that were released around the same time as the B905.

Amongst similar types of webcam the worst video resolution is 640 x 480 pixels.

Has a Snapshot Button

Unlike most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the B905 which do not have a snapshot button, the Logitech B905 has a snapshot button.

We compared all the other webcams with a snapshot button to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the C250[pl_101761_price], and the C600[pl_497439_price] both from Logitech or the Tracer Gizmo[plb_1994550_price] is also worth considering.

Very Small Minimum RAM

The smallest minimum RAM of webcams of this age and spec is 32MB and the biggest is 1.1GB. The Logitech B905 has one of the smaller minimum RAM (only 128 megabytes) amongst comparable spec webcams of this age.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Like most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the B905, the Logitech B905 does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

Most webcams that have been available for around the same time as the B905 are not USB powered. The Logitech B905 is no exception to this as it too is not USB powered.

If you want a webcam that is USB powered then you might also want to consider the Samsung VG-STC2000[plb_1514076_price], the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price].

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most webcams that came out more than two years ago do not feature face tracking. The Logitech B905 is no exception to this as it too does not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which also feature face tracking to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], the Thrustmaster Optical Glass[plb_1043509_price], or the Sweex WC350[plb_1842912_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Mac Compatible

The Logitech B905 is not Mac compatible. Most of the other webcams of this spec and age are also not Mac compatible.

Webcams which are Mac compatible that might be worth considering include the Logitech C300[plb_446165_price], or the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Short Cable Length

The shortest cable length of low megapixel count webcams that have been available for around the same time as the B905 is 0.73m and the longest is 5.7m. The Logitech B905 has one of the shortest cable lengths (only 0.76 meters) amongst low megapixel count webcams of this age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the B905, the Logitech B905 does not have a zoom capability.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a zoom capability to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price], or the Samsung VG-STC2000[plb_1514076_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Logitech B905 does not have a night mode, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have a night mode.

It is worth considering other webcams which also have a night mode including the PLCM19[pl_101449_price], or the PLCM21[pl_101453_price] both from Pyle or the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not Full HD

Most low megapixel count webcams that are a similar age to the B905 are not Full HD. The Logitech B905 is no exception to this as it too is not Full HD.

Webcams which are Full HD that might also be worth considering include the Thrustmaster Link[plb_1043506_price], the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price], or the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price].

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech B905

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Logitech B905 has a fairly standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the B905.

Alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema[plb_85750_price], the V7 Elite Webcam 2000[plb_683310_price], or the Logitech C600[plb_497439_price].

If you would prefer a webcam with a higher maximum frame rate then you might also want to consider the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps) which also has a higher rating.
